Dakka Forum: Why is Warmahordes more tactical than 40k?

I know a little about the rules of Warmahordes, and I know the Wh40k rules pretty well. I also know about the reputation of the two games: 40k is a beer & pretzel game, with spam lists from the Net winning the day. The battles are about simple battle plans with limited tactical decisions (I know that from my observations of kill team games, though, so it's not really representative). Then, Warmachine seems to be about countless tactical choices, and when I scour the Web for winning lists, there are hardly any; on the contrary, most beginners are advised to get some models, start playing and develop their own strategy and skill.

Both games have pretty similar combat rules. Main differences seem to be the attacks of 'Jacks, Focus point allocation and shorter ranges of missile weapons, but they all sound like not a very big deal. Is this reputation true to life? If so, what makes Warmahordes so special?

Dakka Forum: Supporting your local store vs. saving a lot of money

So I often see this discussion and it generally boils down to "If the store goes out of business you'll have no place to play" and while I agree in part, at some point IMHO it has to come down to what you're spending versus saving a lot by ordering online, even without getting into possible logisctics like the store having trouble getting orders from distributors.

So is there really any other argument that can be put forth besides buying from a place you want to stay open? For instance, I just recently looked at some Warmachine things I wanted to order. Now, my store gives a 10% discount, but they also have to charge 7% sales tax, so in reality I'm only getting 3% off of retail. I calculated what I wanted to buy and it basically came out to $284.91 retail. Factoring in my local store's discount but paying sales tax, it came to $274.37, or a savings of around $10. Compare that with ordering from a well-known online store that offers a 30% discount and free 2-day shipping, it comes to $199.44, or a savings of almost $75 more than buying locally; for that price I could buy another unit plus additional things!

Those savings, to me, far outweigh paying $75 more just to buy them from a local shop. If the savings was closer together it might be a harder choice, but really there's no comparison there that I can tell. Loyalty to a store is one thing, but when you're saving almost $100 off a $300 order?

I've started just ordering the cheap things locally, because the savings are minuscule, but ordering anything like $50 or more online where I get a hefty discount as well as free shipping. I just can't justify saving less than $11 versus saving over $85 on the same order.

Lets start the ball rolling, there are enough screen shots now that we have definitive proof of almost all rules.

My first question is this, will you still be fielding 2-3 Annihilation barges at the new price point with the jinking nerf.

Before we get on to all the juicy awesome stuff.
